This is similar to the other O'Reilly pocket references. It gives a good and concise overview of the http mesage set. You need to know a bit about http already to make much use of it but that's what references are for. Small, handy, concise, but lacking an index - my only criticism.

Gives the reader a brush up (if you require one) on HTTP. Good solid info and a clear descriptions. What more could you ask for?

This is a very good explanation of HTTP 1.0 and 1.1, which should be enough for almost all purposes. I strongly recommend it. Two minor points: no mention of HTTP 0.9 as far as I can tell; and contrary to what it says in the introduction, there doesn't seem to be an explanation of how to interact with an HTTP server by hand, probably because the author thought this was obvious. (If you need to do this, use telnet on port 80, type in the requests as the book specifies followed by two carriage returns).

The descriptions are excellent and well laid out with diagrams to show HTTP transaction sequences. Why only 3 stars, because as a reference it suffers in the same way as other O'Reilly pocket references in that it lacks an index. For 75 pages there's a measly contents page with 14 entries.
For online reference I prefer "HTTP Essentials" from Wiley as it comes with the book's text on CD - great for searching.

Just the right level of detail for those who are familiar with web technology, but require more details. Everything is clearly laid out and easy to find, this is the only reference you will ever need for HTTP!
